Book Description
This is a commentary in Sanskrit on Mundakopanisad. The Mundakopanisad is one of the most important of the classical Upanishads. The present edition of the Upanisad is a commentary according to the Shakti Visistadvaita, originally written by the late Umachigi Sankara Sastry.

The Mundakopanisad refers to two Vidyas para and apara, higher knowledge and lower knowledge. While the lower knowledge is the practice of the karma kanda of the Veda, the higher knowledge is the realization of Brahman. The commentary in this book interprets the para vidya or higher knowledge as the Pancaksari vidya, through which the realization of the Paramagiva Brahman is possible. It is also interpreted that the para vidya or higher knowledge is the karana vidya or knowledge of the First Principle or the First Cause.

The commentary says that the Isla linga leads the individual to salvation or moksa. It is not through the mere recitation of the Veda that salvation is possible, but through the inward possession of the Isla linga.

The commentary on the Mundakopanisad in accordance with the system of Shakti Visistadvaita accepts the principle of non-dualism but it interprets the ultimate reality as the auspicious and gracious Lord Siva and world as the manifestation of His grace and power. The commentary is an attempt to reconcile the principles of saguna and nirguna in their interpretation of the highest reality expounded in the Upanishads.

The Upanishads have stated the eternal principles of knowledge and reality. These principles are to be interpreted by successive generations and become the inspiring ideals of life through man's inner experience. As long as man grows richer and richer in his inward experience of the Divine, the Upanishads will continue to have a guiding influence on his thought and action.
